Why do you need to attend this course?
Records known as the Individual Master File (IMF), Non-Master File (NMF), and a large cast of numbered forms and other records with acronyms like TAXMODA, AMDISA, IMFOLT and ENMOD contain a stunning amount of information that the IRS uses to determine your taxpayer status and the amount of taxes the IRS feels you owe. If you don't know what the IRS knows about you (or purports to know about you), you might be in tax trouble and not even know why. One of the most important things everyone must do is obtain their personal records and determine if the information is correct. Then, if you learn that your records are incorrect (and it is almost guaranteed that your records contain numerous "inaccuracies") you must follow certain steps to attempt to get your records corrected. Failure to obtain your records and rebut any inaccuracies may place you in serious personal and financial jeopardy.
What are typical "inaccuracies" the IRS might have in your records? Documented examples include claiming that you are a business filer (even if you have never owned or operated your own business); you may be listed as a manufacturer of guns or alcohol (even if you've never shot a gun or taken a drink); you may be listed as a railroad retiree (even if you have never worked for a railroad) and the list goes on, and on, and on and on! No one, particularly the IRS, seems to be able to explain how records become so "inaccurate" but any of these "inaccuracies" can put you in a tax status that requires you to file certain tax returns and pay certain taxes. Because IRS computers only react to the data they are given, "inaccuracies" appearing in your files may start a chain of events which can have serious repercussions. Correcting those "inaccuracies" may be highly beneficial for avoiding small problems that could become big problems.
And, there are many examples where certain IRS actions (liens, levies, assessments, Notices of Deficiency, substituted tax returns, etc.) have been taken without complying with published procedures or regulations, or were done by individuals without the authority to take those actions. The paper trail for such matters, and a clear cut defense, can often be found in your records; but you must obtain and decode your files to have any chance of using the governments own documents to refute and correct those records. This is a prime example of why only you, and only you, can defend yourself from false claims and improper actions.
These files often seem like a computer Geek's ultimate dream. They are presented in obscure codes that are all but (intentionally?) impossible for the novice to interpret. Supporting documents are further codified (obscured?) by Document Locator Numbers (DLN's) which must also be obtained and interpreted. Strangely, there are many examples of supporting documentation, specifically identified by a DLN, which does not exist in a persons file! Using proven methods to identify the lack of supporting documentation or authority may make IRS actions based on the original "inaccuracy" moot.
Richard Standring will be our instructor. He will explain the simple process of obtaining your records through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. Richard will then cover the basics of decoding the records and using additional FOIA requests to obtain documentation which may, or may not, support the accuracy of the main records. Attendees who have their IMF's and related files may wish to bring those to class to get a real-life experience in decoding their own files.
Although time is short, you may be able to obtain some of your personal records before the course date, but you must act quickly. Although having copies of your own records at the course could be beneficial on a personal level, having your actual records is not necessary. The course is intended as a general overview and you will receive more than enough information to act with confidence whenever you decide it is time to obtain your records and begin your personal "journey."
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Richard Standring is well known for the research he has done analyzing and interpreting the IRS Code and the immense amount of related laws, regulations, policies and procedures. His work has highlighted many, many inconsistencies, irregularities and "lapses" in these government guidelines. This has led Richard to develop a system for obtaining personal and business records, interpreting those records, rebutting false presumptions and inaccuracies contained in those records and then building an evidence package within IRS files which may exonerate a person or business from IRS claims and actions.
